Housam is a 26-year-old single man who owns a bakery. He lives in Tyre and opened his shop in 2007. His bakery is in front of the general hospital; therefore, his customers are hospital patients, employees and neighbors. He offers very affordable prices.

This is Housam's third loan. He reports that the previous ones helped him support his business, which in turn allowed him to build his own house. Housam is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua in order to reinforce his sales by increasing his stock of flour and oil. He also wants to finish building his house. In the future, Housam wishes to open a new branch and to help his brothers by hiring them at the bakery.
